Australian GP 2004 - One too easy for Ferrari.

Such had been his metronomic pace through the first three-quarters of the event, only five cars remained on the lead lap at that point, although Button managed to make it six as he repassed the slowing Ferrari. Montoya, after a third troubled stop, had been in danger of suffering the ignominy of being lapped, but survived to come home over a minute adrift of the winner.

Trulli and Coulthard, positions unchanged despite the Scot's best efforts, claimed the final points, while Sato's assault on eighth was slowed by damage to the rear wing of his BAR. Fisichella headed rookie Christian Klien, the disappointingly slow Toyotas and another newcomer, Giorgio Pantano as the final finishers.
